Colin Angus is Almost Home

We first wrote about Colin Angus and his quixotic quest to be the first person to circumnavigate the planet entirely by human power over 15 months ago The team has changed (he is now accompanied by his fiancee Julie Wafaei). but he is almost home, having just rowed across the Atlantic Ocean for 156 days. All that is left is to hop on their Norco's for that easy bike ride north from Costa Rica to Vancouver. The goal: "By travelling 42,000 km using only human power, the team hopes to promote awareness about global warming and demonstrate how effective human powered travel can be." We wish them luck on the last leg of their remarkable journey. ::Expedition Planet Earth
